Night feedings can be a killer, but I found that it helps to have the Babycrat's cot right next to my bed, so that when he cries, all I have to do is lean over and carry him into my bed, where I feed him lying down.

Unfortunately, one drawback of this position is that it is so comfortable, I often fall asleep feeding him. And then when I wake up in the morning, I can't remember where I left the baby and my first panicky thought will be: "Where's the baby!?" while first scanning his cot, then my bed.

And if it turns out he's sleeping next to me, my next thought will be: "Did I roll over him and kill him?? Is he still alive??" while pressing his stomach and pumping his arms to make sure he's still breathing.

I is bad Mummy!
